Glue and cement aren’t usually materials you associate with your watch. But when screws just won’t do, adhesives are here to bind together delicate materials. Glues and cement are primarily used in watch repair to attach glasses or crystals. While these materials are flexible and somewhat durable, the application of glue or cement will ensure that the watch glass does not slip out of its setting and aids in sealing the timepiece. Glues can also be used to attach delicate hour markers or to mend watch straps. Different glues and cement work best with different materials or require special equipment, like a UV light, so make sure to check your watch and use the appropriate adhesive.
